Good morning, everyone! Can you believe spring break is right around the corner? We sure can’t!
On this day, in 1972, the Thule Air Force Base in Pituffik, Greenland recorded a wind gust of 207 miles per hour with sustained winds of 146 miles per hour. Mind you, this was not associated with a tornado or hurricane, just a regular thunderstorm! In the United States of America, the highest wind gust ever recorded took place at the summit of Mount Washington, New Hampshire, on April 12th, 1934, reaching a staggering 231 miles per hour. Isn’t that crazy?
Did you learn something new today? We hope so! Have a great week!
